Normally, December is a month filled with school events as we have an opportunity to enjoy our winter concerts together, participate in the Mayor's Food Drive and share our best wishes of the season with one another. This year, the absence of these opportunities are profound, but through it all, our classrooms continue to be places of caring and connection. We are very proud of our students and our learning community as they continue to demonstrate resilience and joy.
This Friday is Pajama Day for our AM kindergarten and grade 1-4 students. Students and staff are welcome to wear their Pajama's to school on December 18th and enjoy some classroom based activities and celebrations. Our afternoon kindergarten students may participate on Thursday, December 17th, as this is their last day before the winter break.
In accordance with the provincial mandate, for the week of Jan. 4-8th 2021, our students will be learning online. Evergreen teachers and grade teams have been busy planning and preparing materials for this week. Teachers will be sharing the specifics with their students and families prior to winter break. In preparation, it is important that your children and or yourself know how to access their Google Classroom. Please confirm that your students know their username and password. For our youngest learners, teachers will be sharing this information directly with parents.
With our current restrictions, our winter break will look different than it has looked before; however, we wish you and your family rest, peace and hope in spite of the challenges all around us. If you celebrate Christmas, we wish you a Merry Christmas and to everyone a Happy New Year. Have a safe and happy holiday.
